Presentation of research results at the CARE conference
Researchers from the Centre for Social Informatics (CSI) at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana, participated at the CARE conference: challenges and solutions for a sustainable future in April. The event focused on the issues of sustainable care and provided a space for critical analyses, constructive discussion and further reflection on topics affecting the contexts of care in everyday life. The virtual conference offered three weeks of content and collaboration and was organized by the research Centre for International Research on Cahre, Labour and Equalities (CIRCLE) based at the University of Sheffield.
CSI researchers presented two studies examining the impact of telecare system use on informal carer's self-efficacy and the psychosocial outcomes of telemedicine use in patients with chronic conditions receiving care in the family medicine reference clinic:
